    Story Behind the Art:
    'My name is Danai Leosawathiphong. After going to college, mypartner's father suggested that we create something representativeof the area where we live and we came up with the idea of coveringnatural products, such as exotic flowers and plants, with gold. Ithink our creations have a lot of potential. I do not think theywill go out of fashion, because people generally love flowers. Itis so interesting when you work for yourself. For the past 20 yearsor so, I have had good and bad times but I enjoyed it all. It ispretty much like black coffee - bitter, sweet and very nice.'

      I bought these earrings as a Mother's Day gift for my mom. When she opened the box, we were both completeley stunned at the beauty and quality of the workmanship of the earrings- the picture online did not do these works of art justice. They were beautiful in the picture, which was what made me purchase them in the first place, but when we opened them from the box their beauty was obviously apparent. The rich purple color was simply stunning- and the pale color at the tip if the petal blended with the color of the tip of my mother's ear making it look like the petal was apart of her. The gold outline was so simple and fragile and offset the petal beautifully providing just enough shimmer without being overdone. I cannot express to you how much we both adore these earrings- it was hard letting her keep them! If i would have known they were going to be this stunning I would have ordered some for myself! The box the earrings came in was a gift in itself- so thoughtfully wrapped and delivered in just the perfect way. We are both very much naturalists and the combination of the box with the earrings was such a nice touch....a gift within a gift. The color of the petals are deep and rich...encompassing the orchid's natural beauty. There is nothing in the workmanship that detracts from this- it only enhances the natural beauty of the petal leaving the piece a breathtaking work of art. I would HIGHLY reccommend these earrings to anyone...they are truly a gift to be treasured and loved- and i know they will be passed down for generations to come. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

      I just got them this am and I cannot believe the quality, and beauty. The box they came in is made of handmade paper with a leaf on top. I know places in New Haven where the box would be worth $15. Everything you see is true to color and size. They have a nice curl at the bottom. I also like the fact that they are connected w/ Nat. Geographic, and people around the world are now connected through the intetnet. The Novica team is doing a great thing and people are being paid as they should. I only wish my whole wardrobe was purple, so I could wear them all the time

      These earrings are a unique addition to any wardrobe. They are quite large, so be sure you look at the dimensions before you order. Despite their size, however, they are not at all heavy on the ears. The packaging was a pleasant surprise, too. These would make a great gift.

      These are very pretty earrings but way too large for me. I prefer smaller more dainty earrings but if you like large earrings, these may be for you?
